Country hitmakers LONESTAR will return to TV screens nationwide this Saturday (2/1) when they appear on “The Song—Recorded Live @ TGL Farms,” a new show dedicated to the songwriting craft (check local listings here). The group performs their smash #1 hits “Amazed” and “I’m Already There,” then they welcome special guest JIM MESSINA in for a performance of his 1972 hit “Your Mama Don’t Dance.”
In the episode, LONESTAR--Richie McDonald (lead vocals), Michael Britt (lead guitar & backing vocals), Keech Rainwater (drums) and Dean Sams (keyboards, backing vocals & harmonica)—talk about their songwriting process and the homesickness behind “I’m Already There,” (co-written by McDonald, Gary Baker and Frank J. Myers) which would go on to comfort many military families away from home. For “Amazed,” songwriters Chris Lindsey, Marv Green and Aimee Mayo explain how they wrote the song and how it eventually ended up becoming a #1 smash for Lonestar.
“The Song” shares stories behind some of the biggest Rock, Pop, Country, Triple A, R&B and Hip Hop songs ever written and recorded, featuring CeeLo Green, Big & Rich, Don McLean, Sublime w/Rome, Travis Tritt, Rick Springfield and Gretchen Wilson.
